Campus Cutie: Lauae Schweitzer

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Lauae Schweitzer, and I'm a junior marketing major (hoping to pick up a double major or possibly a minor in the near future). I'm originally from California. I have been a member of the Delta Sigma chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta for the past two years. I am also currently a member of the Love Your Melon crew, and I was on the Victoria Secret Pink Team.

 

What is your favorite part about going to school in Hawaii?

I love the friends and family I've made that make Hawaii feel like home. Also, going to the beach every day is nice (if I have the time).

 

Why did you want to be an ambassador for Bumble?

When I was researching companies that I would want to potentially represent, Bumble caught my eye as I was listening to the How I Built This With Guy Raz podcast episode featuring Bumble's CEO, Whitney Wolfe. As I learned more about Bumble's mission, story, and values, I was inspired to apply for the position due to their initiative to empower people. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be an ambassador for Bumble.

What does being a campus director for Bumble entail?

As the campus director for Bumble, I am a representative of Bumble's values and their mission. Campus directors also have a positive, empowering influence, and are always a team player. Loving the color yellow is a plus as well, but is not required.

 

How is Bumble different from other dating apps?

Bumble is a social connection app with over 40 million users worldwide that empowers the user to make the first move in every situation. It is more than just a dating app, it's a networking app. In addition to Bumble Date, there is Bumble Bizz for career networking and Bumble BFF for expanding your social circle. The company's values are heavily rooted in the app, and they truly care about the user's experience. For example, Bumble's snooze feature allows the user to prioritize themselves and take a digital detox by pausing activity on the app.

 

 

How has being a campus director helped you grow?

Taking on the position of campus director has helped me break out of my shell. It's allowed me to talk to and forge new relationships with different organizations on campus. In addition to improving my event planning skills, being a campus director has also given me a preview into the marketing/business world. I've been able to grow creatively by collaborating and innovating with my team.

 

What can we expect from the Bumble campus team in regards to future events?

Currently, we are planning a Friendsgiving event where we are partnering with Feeding America. We are also working on putting on a future Core Power yoga event. And there will be much more to come spring semester!
